Summary

From Fr. Gabriele Amorth, the renowned exorcist in Rome, comes this powerful, eye-opening book on the deadly antics of Satan and his fallen angels, as well as spiritual remedies for each.  

This book provides a basic orientation in the dark phenomenology, succinctly explaining Catholic doctrine on the fallen angels and the innumerable manifestations. 

The many questions Fr. Amorth answers in this book include:  

  • Where does the Evil One dwell in the human body?
  • How does the Devil appear and what does he look like?
  • What are the powers that comes from Satan?
  • Do the sins of ancestors influence our life?
  • How are spiritual evils contracted?
  • What is the state of souls in purgatory?
  • What is the role of sacramentals in fighting off temptation?
  • When should exorcisms and prayers of healing be performed?
  • What happens during an exorcism?
  • What you should do when a family is being attacked by a demon?

Excellent narrator, interesting subject

Other reviews highlight poor narration, but I found him very good and his tone relaxing. I did the whole book in 2 sittings which is impossible with an annoying narrator. Listen to the sample and make your on mind up.

The topic is interesting and delves into the more mystical aspects of Catholicism that you don't hear often.

GREAT BOOK, WORST NARRATOR EVER

Father Gabriele Amorth is amazing. This book is basically like a dump of all his knowledge onto the page before he died. SUCH a treasury of information. For those who are scared easily--beware. There were some things in this book that upset me so much, I had to pause the recording. The devil doesn't mess around. But this info is important to know.
The TRAVESTY is the narrator. I actually bought this audible book then returned it because the narrator's voice is SO BAD I couldn't take it. But then I bought it again and have been suffering through his horrible reading style and voice just to hear the book.
Think Nicholas Cage in Peggy Sue Got Married. The guy is ridiculous. Like he's trying his scariest scary voice. Ugh. It really is just sad.
This book is essential listening for Catholics. Just offer up having to listen to the horrible narrator for the Holy Souls in Purgatory.
As he mispronounces in the book, his reading is "a real cavalry" (Calvary). Ugh.
EDIT: I find it interesting that this narrator's other projects include SOFT PORN. It's a shame the publisher couldn't find a more appropriate voice over artist. Also, he butcher's Padre Pio's last name. UGH. And don't get me started when he starts his ridiculous attempts at Latin (Ecce Crucem Domino pronounced as Ekay crukem domino.)
ADDENDUM: he pronounces Carmelite as Car-mel-ee-tay. Couldn’t they find someone who had some knowledge of Catholicism? Or at least someone who knew how to look up the pronunciation of unfamiliar words? It’s ridiculous and unprofessional.

Fantastic book, comically poor narrator

I think the book was worth dealing with the poor narration. I was even able to get used to it after the first couple chapters. The guy does sound like he should be doing action movie trailers instead of audiobooks. The book is incredibly comprehensive and informative on the subject. It’s very helpful in understanding this obscure and often wildly misunderstood subject. Great reads for Catholics.

Excellent. Straight forward.

Information is easy to follow and written for lay person understanding with specific references throughout. Excellent.

informative

Explains a lot about the Catholic faith and also informs a lot and gives you a better understanding of what is actually an exorcism and what is not base on science combined with faith!

Performance makes fascinating topic boring

I was excited about this book, but after listening to a few minutes of the recording, I had to stop. there is no variance in the voice, no emphasis on particular phrases... will be requesting a refund. I'll find another recording or read it myself.

This book fills us with hope and love

Written by a person who has seen the worst, this book fills us with hope and love. All the more we need to embrace suffering in this world, in Christ, with Christ and through Christ. May you rest in peace, Fr. Amorth.

Great insights!

I have read into the practice of exorcism previously, and so want stunned by the things I have read here.
that being said thr details and nuances were definitely mined blowing!
I highly suggest this for anyone, protestant or catholic, who is curious about this practice.

I am a revert back to the Catholic Faith, and have finally felt at home since being welcomed into thre fold.
this will only deepen your faith.

Amazing

I recommend this to any true Christian to help them believe more in the spiritual nature as well as The evil nature that interacts with our world. This book will help you better understand the forces of evil and how to abstain from living in evil life
